I don't see why it would need to be any more substantial than on LGV Est for example, which is set up for 350 km/h. I would hope that it won't end up looking like the GW electrification which looks like it could withstand a nuclear blast

The viaduct design does look lovely. It reminds me of someone playing ducks and drakes!

Ah yes, the good old Series 1 from Furrer & Frey!

As for the OHLE, I hope it can be made to be so minimal and spaced out. It has been done well in the past on structures like the Royal Border Bridge at Berwick, but these wires will need to be tensioned to a much higher level to cope with 200mph+ running.
The supporting arches could arch above the parapet and provide support tothe catenary. They could also use bars intead of cable.
